I make things for my kittens all the time My job is to get them up to 2 pounds or 8 weeks as it is hard to innoculate before then. Prior to that most of their kitten medicines are oral only I give them a blend of overcooked white or brown rice, 1 can of white meat chicken, 1/4 teaspoon of Nutra_Cal (a cat vit. suppliment) 1/8 cup chicken stock, 1/4 t corn syrup. I find this blend works well. Cats taste buds do not recognize sweet taste, only salt, and bitter.
They are prone to upper resp. problems and I treat that by using a vaporizer next to a carrier covered with a towl and a bit of vicks vaporub . It works better then a lot of the things vets give them. I try to eliminated as many inoculations as I can, as in cats it has been noted that later in life, most tumors that develop happen around the area that was innoculated. If a cat is kept indoors the only shots they need for life is the ones they got as a kitten. They should while in kitten stages be tested for FIV feline parvo and lukemia which is deadly when they are kittens because they are to young to fight it. Vets want you to come in and give them all kinds of booster shots etc. DO NOT DO IT thay don't need it , the vet does to make $.
Trivia Fact if you and I were in a totaly darkened room with 3 cats , who would see the best????
Neither in order to see , cats need at least 1 beam of light, then they can see 6 times better then us. Also all cats are farsighted.thats why when you put treats in front of them they can't see them but they find them by smell(watch them next time)
